Condomonium: $780,000 for 2,100 square-feet of prime downtown partying space
ADDRESS: 160 Frederick St., unit 302
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Moss Park
AGENT: Jane Chen, RE/MAX Realtron Realty Inc.
THE PLACE: A corner suite in Olde York Place I, a mid-rise building near St. Lawrence Market with a distinct sense of the past.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Plaques near the entrance mark the location as the former site of William Lyon Mackenzie’s newspaper, The Colonial Advocate (1824-34) and commemorate the birthplace of Robert Baldwin, aka Mr. Responsible Government. Of course, if history doesn’t excite you, the building’s squash and basketball courts probably will.
BIG SELLING POINT: The current owner works in the entertainment industry and loves to entertain. The walls of the den were knocked down to maximize schmoozing space. Stretching to almost 100-square-metres, the massive living area means you’ll have more room to show off your dance moves.
POSSIBLE DEALBREAKER: Two new condo towers are scheduled for construction across the street. Prepare for obstructed views and noise, noise, noise.
BY THE NUMBERS:
• 2125 square feet
